Speed up DNS lookups
Authored by: Felix on Jun 08, '07 01:57:19PM

This "tip" is the last of several (nearly identical instructions) I've seen bouncing around the web over time. When I first tried it out, I knew subjectively I was seeing a increase in look-up times. So I pinged the two OpenDNS IPs and got the following average over five pings:

208.67.222.222 .052 sec

208.67.220.220 .053 sec

Then I used the IP my ISP (T-Online) recommends and got an average of .002 sec.

Needless to say, I returned to what I was previously using. Now maybe it's because I'm overseas but OpenDNS is definitely slower for me.
